Weekly Time Commitment for NCAA Wrestlers:

NCAA I  Wrestling 32 41 73
NCAA II Wrestling 27 38 65
NCAA III Wrestling 27 39 66
Average 29 39 68
 
 If you want to wrestle in college expect the athletic commitment to come close to being a 2nd full time job.  And contrary to popular belief, Division III wrestling requires almost the same commitment of weekly hours as Division I.  Developing efficient time management skills is key to becoming  a successful student-athlete.  Source: NCAA Goals Study

Wrestling is an equivalency sport for NCAA scholarship purposes, so partial scholarships can  be awarded  to meet the limit per school.  For example, an NCAA Division II school can award 18 wrestlers each a 1/2  scholarship and still meet the  limit of 9 per team.
 Women's wrestling is not an official sport of either the NCAA or NAIA, the governing body for women's teams is the Women's College Wrestling Association. See our page on scholarship limits for more information.

Do the Math! The average NCAA Division I men's team has a roster size of 32 wrestlers but only a maximum of 9.9 athletic scholarships per team are available. This means the average award covers only about 1/3 of an athlete's annual college costs.

 * Average Athletic Scholarship is the average award per athlete for ALL varsity sports sponsored by the specific school. Some athletes receive full awards, some receive partial and many receive none. Additionally some sports within a school may be fully funded, some partially and some sports provide no athletic scholarships. Private schools generally have higher tuition than public schools and the average award will reflect this.

The reason I had my kid start a college recruiting profile.
 
2018 Profile Summary:

CASEY O'ROURKE
Class of 2022
Saint *** School
Washington, DC

GPA: 3.1 / 4.0

Height: 6'2"
Weight: 155
Age: 14

Position: Point Guard

Points / Game: 15
Free Throw %: 80
Field Goal %: 55

2018 I had my son Casey start a recruiting profile in 9th grade to help motivate him to get better grades.

He's like thousands of 14 year old basketball players around the county: loves to play the game, plays on multiple teams and already has his eyes set on possibly playing in college. But like many kids his age he'll intently work on developing skills in a sport, but focusing on class work is well ... another matter.

When Casey began 9th grade this year he started a free profile with NCSA. He loves entering his game stats, videos and other athletic information, but it also became immediately clear to him that his grade point average will be just as major of a factor in his prospects of playing college basketball as his points per game average.

I don't know if my son will actually end up playing in college. He might lose interest in the sport, get injured or simply not have the skill set to play at the collegiate level.  But if part of his high school experience includes a focus on achieving good grades in the hopes of maybe playing in college, then maintaining a recruiting profile is a valuable tool at this stage of his schooling.

Whether you are an 8th grade wrestler or a 10th grade swimmer, starting a recruiting profile is an easy, free & effective way to help you focus on what college coaches are looking for in a student athlete. Full disclosure: NCSA is one of our site sponsors, there are several other reputable sites that also offer recruiting profiles free of cost. The ideal time to create a college recruiting profile is when a student athlete is in 8th, 9th or 10th grade.

Coach's Corner:
We asked a few wrestling coaches from around the country to provide some brief input for high school and middle school wrestlers hoping to compete in College. We've highlighted some thoughts we believe are particularly helpful:

coach
Joe Russell, George Mason University (NCAA I) :


Dream and prepare about going to college at a young age. Taking care of academics in high school is key to having options as a college athlete. Don’t wait until you’re a junior or senior to worry about academics.

Athletic aid is limited and competitive to get. Winning a state title does not mean you will receive an athletic scholarship. In wrestling, most walk on. In wrestling very few get a full-ride. Most athletes on aid are only going to receive a partial scholarship. To get noticed athletically in wrestling, you will most likely need to do well in national competitions. How are you doing at the bigger tournaments? If you can’t get to them, how is your instate competition doing against the best in the country.

Stand out academically and on the mat. Have coaches advocate on your behalf. If your coach speaks well of you, it matters. Have people in your community speak on your behalf. If you are a leader in your community, it matters. Have your teammates speak well of you. I watch team interaction to see if a wrestler is respected by his peers.

Be coachable. Seek out instruction. Be visible. Go to camps. Attend out of season competitions. Be in the sport for the long haul. It takes time to make gains. Consistency, diligence and perseverance gets rewarded in wrestling.

 
Josh Hutchens, Ashland University (NCAA II):

Coaches are  interested in motivation.  You show motivation for the sport by training and competing in the offseason.  You show motivation for the school by communicating with the coaches and visiting the campus.
 

People are often misinformed of the availability of scholarships for college wrestling.   DII wrestling teams are allowed a total of 9 scholarships per team, but very few are funded close to that number.

The best way to increase your total financial aid is through academics.  The NCAA currently exempts academic aid for students with high school GPA’s at or above 3.5, ACT sum of 100 or top 20% of graduating class.  This means that any academic scholarship you receive does not count toward the 9 allowable by the NCAA.  If you meet any of these criteria you are a more attractive candidate for athletic aid. 

Athletic success is still the most influential criteria for athletic aid.  Each state tournament is rated differently, so it is important to also compete nationally.  You should seek out competitions where you can showcase your abilities against highly ranked opponents.
